5.0 out of 5 stars What a relief!, 3 Mar 2012

This review is from: 7 Steps to a Pain-Free Life: How to Rapidly Relieve Back and Neck Pain (Paperback)
If you are reading this review then you almost certainly already know about the crippling pain that back problems can inflict and anything which might help is worth a shot. But there are so many treatments to consider; physiotherapy, osteopathy, yoga, drugs, even surgery - the list goes on.

Forget all that, says Robin McKenzie. Most of the established remedies don't work and can actually make things worse while hurting your pocket as well as your spine. All you need is to do some simple stretching exercises on a regular basis and your lumbar problems will vanish as if by magic.

It sounds too good to be true because we have been trained to believe that there is no quick fix and we have to reconcile ourselves to long courses of expensive treatment if we are to recover.

But McKenzie's claims seem to hold water and his exercises have become part of the mainstream of physiotherapy. He recommends one visit to a good physio to establish the root of the problem but, after that, all you need is his book and some common sense.

It certainly worked for me and I look back with regret at the money I have poured into various therapists' pockets, to no real effect, when I could have been curing myself, effectively, for the small cost of this book. Not only have agonising back pains and sciatica vanished from my life but, just as important, I no longer live in dread of the back 'going' and can get on with living in a far more confident way.

Of course, backs are ticklish things, and not everything works for everybody. But what McKenzie recommends is so obviously sensible and can have such astonishing and immediate results, then it really is worth a try if your back has become your worst enemy.
